4 reviews for Buddhist Meditation: Tranquillity, Imagination and Insight (Paperback)

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    Giulietta Spudich

    One I keep coming back to. The teaching is deep yet accessible, and has informed my meditation as a total beginner and now, four years later.

  2. Aardvark

    This is a thorough and detailed meditation manual, good on theory and practice. I’ve referred to it often over the years. Highly recommended.

  3. Zarko Andricevic

    While numerous works on Buddhist meditation are available today, there is still a need for an accessible and understandable handbook. This book is precisely such an exhaustive work. By presenting some of the basic methods, it offers us a detailed map with clear instructions about the path leading to tranquillity and insight. The book is the fruit of the author’s many years’ experience of meditation and teaching, with a wealth of advice – for those who are taking their first steps on the path, as well as more experienced practitioners.

  4. Rated 5 out of 5

    Easy to read, enjoyable, this book takes the reader all the way from the basic foundation practices to advanced levels of practice. Kamalshila’s gentle wisdom shines through every page.
